One Question to Accelerate Success
Write it down. Get a picture of it. Don’t just say I want a home on the beach. Get a picture of it and put it in front of you. Don’t just say you want a big boat. Go see a boat dealer, go to the boat show—get a picture of it, put it on your desk and start picturing yourself having it. Why? It’s going to help you pursue your dream and remind you of it. Also, Einstein would say that there’s no significant difference between that which is vividly dreamed or actually perceived and achieved.
If you already did have a million or two in the bank, if you already did own that home, that boat, that educational fund for your children or grandchildren, how would you feel? My guess is you would feel a lot different than you feel today. You’d feel full of pride and self-confidence, self-assuredness and the strength to get out no matter what and go make things happen. And that’s what Einstein is saying. The power of dreams is to start feeling like you’ve already accomplished something, which makes it almost inevitable that it’s going to happen. That’s the power of dreaming big.
So, move from the how and focus on the why. Why do you want to become a millionaire? What’s your dream? As you start picturing it and start believing it and start acting as if you’ve almost already achieved it, the why will start turning into the how, and you will become a millionaire.
